10 Apr Day 11
The elements won today. Thick fog and unstable snow halted the plan to ski down «Newtontoppen». They waited an hour under under a wind protecting tarp at the foot of the mountain for the weather to clear, but no use. The last days have been intense, and this morning they felt extra tired and fatigued, so they decided to go back to camp, get some much needed rest and fuel up for the last 4/5 days.
Tomorrow they’ll enter the glacier «Veteranen». The conditions will be hard, as it snowed at least 20cm today. But the spirits are high, and with tonights calorie surplus they’ll be ready for the distance ahead.
